Seppin Reviews: Superman: Escape from Bizarro World

Welcome back! Today we will be reviewing Superman: Escape from Bizarro World written by Geoff Johns and Richard Donner with art by Eric Powell.

 

~~Review~~

 

Yes, it is another Geoff Johns story. As most of you know, I am a huge Geoff Johns fan and I want to basically collect all of his books because he is my favorite writer. I picked up this story for a dollar. So I wasn’t expecting much from it. All I knew was that it was another Superman story by Geoff Johns and that Richard Donner worked with him like he always does whenever Geoff Johns writes a Superman story.

I don’t know how I feel about this story. I feel like it is a little short, but I also think that there are a lot of good parts in this story. I love how Bizarro is written and how all of the Bizarros in Bizarro world are written as well. The story is actually really fun with a lot of jokes, Bizarro Luthor is my favorite character. I also think that there wasn’t much Superman in this. Which is strange because he is on like every page. I say this mostly because I don’t feel like Superman has much of a presence here. I love the introduction of Bizarro world, but I just feel like Superman was sidelined in his own story here. I also thought that the new power of Superman vision was interesting and I would like to see it pop up again sometime.

Overall, the book was okay. I enjoyed parts of it, but it’s not the best Superman story by Geoff Johns.
